About BioPro

The goal of BioPro is to raise the knowledge and efficiency of our local and regional bioscience workforce, thereby improving the competitiveness of our industry. A more highly-skilled bioscience workforce makes a positive impact on company operations and competitiveness. While enriching the Oregon workforce in general, BioPro training also improves employee recruitment, strengthens managerial capacity, grows economic development capacity, and increases production output and grows wages. Both Oregon Bio member and non-member companies are eligible to participate in the training.

The BioPro Steering Committee

Oregon Bio uses a formal steering committee made up of human resources and quality management experts from member companies. The committee guides Oregon Bio in selecting courses and instructors that will have the most value to industry companies and their workforce development needs. Current steering committee members include representatives from Acumed, Aerotek, APDM, Biotronik/MSEI, Genentech, Montgomery Strategic, Lumencor, Molecular MD, Pacific Light Technology, Pulse Health, SolarWorld, TE Connectivity, Thermo Fisher, RevMedx and Vanguard EMS.  Learn more about Oregon Bio committees.

For more information about BioPro classes or how to join the Steering Committee, please contact Julie Black at julie@oregonbio.org


Many classes are four hours in length, enabling employees to work a half day. Multiple day classes are scheduled one week apart so that the impact of an employees absence from work is minimized.

The training curriculum is based on standardized, industry-accepted curriculum and FDA requirements related to the medical device and pharmaceutical industries.

Classes result in an Oregon Bio certification. The curriculum and class logistics are also evaluated by students, employers, and steering committee members to ensure continuous improvement in each offering as needed.
